One Week Until the Great Shakeout, FEMA’s New Madrid Seismic Zone Earthquake Drill

(FEMA)  One week from today, at 10:15 am central, millions of Americans across the central U.S. will stop what they’re doing, whether at school, in the office, or at home, to take part in the first-ever public earthquake drill in the New Madrid Seismic Zone region. And that’s not the only “first” – this Great Central U.S. Shakeout is also the first earthquake drill ever to be conducted in multiple U.S. states simultaneously.

Earlier today, I joined several of our partners, Ernie Allen, the President and CEO of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and Dave Maxwell, the head of the Arkansas Department of Emergency Management, on a conference call with reporters to discuss the Shakeout. And just minutes before our call, we learned that 2.6 million Americans have now signed up to drop, take cover, and hold on.

This is exciting news and a great start. But, with 40 million people living in the New Madrid Seismic Zone, we know we can do better. Next Thursday, members from across the entire team will be spanning out to attend Shakeout drills in all 10 states. In fact, many of us here at FEMA’s headquarters, other federal agencies, and even cabinet-level officials, will be joining the many schools, colleges, state and local government agencies, hospitals, child care organizations and countless other groups at their drills.

As I said earlier today, we all know preparedness is a team effort. FEMA is just one part of this team – and the most important member is you. Whether it’s preparing for earthquakes or other disasters, learning how to protect ourselves in the immediate moments of an emergency can make all the difference when the real thing happens.

  • I think that FEMA is preparing for what they know will be happening via a technologically created major earthquake along the New Madrid Fault line. HAARP and other such ‘weather’ machines have most likely been involved in the Japan earthquake, the Indonesian tsunami, the recent earthquakes in Chile and New Zealand and now it is America’s turn to be devastated by ‘natural phenomenon.’ I also believe the major changes in the world’s weather is being artificially stimulated.

  • comments often suggest that mass power of intent may be more than enough to remotely diffuse haarp’s intents

  • Anything FEMA or DHS is involved in is creepy and surely has an alterior motive.

  • I agree with you three folks. Michelle, thank you for being brave enough to speak out the truth on this matter.

  • This Gov. Types lie through there teeth. The last place you want to be during a quake is under anything (desk, door frame, etc.), you want to be NEXT to something big and heavy. For example, if you are in a kitchen and a quake starts, get next to the fridge and if the roof collapses then there will be a triangle of air between the falling debris, fridge and the floor.
